WiFi: Change Your Computer's Default Wireless Network


When you register a device to access the ut-open or eduroam wireless networks, your device may sometimes favor connecting to one network. If you want to set the default network to eduroam, follow the steps below.

Windows 10/11

  1. Click the wireless icon in the notification area.
  2. Select eduroam.
  3. Check the box for Connect automatically, then click Connect. This automatically moves the network up the priority list. 
  4. You may next want to follow the same steps for ut-open and make sure the box for Connect automatically is unchecked.


  1. Click the Wi-Fi icon in the menu bar, then Open Network Preferences. (Alternatively, from the Apple menu, click System Preferences > Network.)
  2. Select Wi-Fi in the left pane and then click Advanced.
  3. Under the Wi-Fi tab, you can drag the network names in the list of preferred wireless networks in the center pane to reprioritize them. The network at the top has the highest priority. Drag eduroam to the top for it to be the first priority.
